You might want to consider getting a low-cost AMD graphics card, there
are plenty of RDNA2 GPUs at around $100 now.

Alternatively, if your computer supports SAM (Smart Access Memory) or
ReBAR (Resizable BAR) in the BIOS (or through a BIOS update for the
motherboard), then an Intel Arc A380 is usually around $100 too.

Both will perform significantly better and get you out of the hole of
legacy NVIDIA drivers that are going to EOL.
